The ArcWorlde Compendium: Kickstarter läuft
Der Kickstarter zum ArcWorlde Compendium läuft.
Journey to the setting from the exciting tabletop game of ArcWorlde, where the many peoples and creatures dwell and battle within the mysterious Mildaark Forest. Exclusively illustrated and written by the game’s creator, Alex Huntley.
ArcWorlde is a fantasy narrative battle game for playing out dramatic clashes between Warbands and monsters on the tabletop.
Represented by unique miniatures hand-cast in metal and resin, it is the perfect casual game for those who enjoy a whimsical and more light-hearted tabletop experience.
ArcWorlde’s current range includes 8 playable Factions so far, along with many exciting monsters for you to collect, paint and play. All of the rules for ArcWorlde are online, free to download and printer-friendly for those who like to make their own physical copies.
The game is constantly developing with new updated rules, Factions and creature miniatures. Watch this space!
The ArcWorlde Compendium is a comprehensive 200-page fully illustrated hardback tome that explores the Factions and monsters that populate the tabletop game.
Uncover the stories and lore behind the beloved characters and factions that make up this fantasy world. Each chapter will be illustrated in full colour, and will be the perfect accompaniment to the rules and miniatures.
The ArcWorlde Compendium is illustrated and written by Alex Huntley – the game’s creator and sculptor. You will gain special insight into the creative imagination and process of bringing to life this unique universe over the last 10 years.
The ArcWorlde Compendium is a homage to the stories, legends, and many games played amongst the ArcWorlde community over the last decade.
The book will be professionally designed with Craig Proud from Dizzy Ink Studio in Nottingham, UK.
Printed at the old Foolscap size, this will indeed be an impressive larger-than-A4 hardback tome. Foolscap was named after the fool’s cap and bells watermark commonly used from the 15th century onwards on paper of these dimensions and is a nod to the real life history which continues to inspire the fantasy genre today.
Bound in high-quality cloth this tome certainly would not look out of place on a wizard’s enchanted shelves from ArcWorlde.
We are working closely with some excellent printers to make sure that the final publication will be the same exceptionally high quality as our miniatures are known for.
If you are on a tighter budget and would still love to learn more about ArcWorlde, the book will also be available as a high-resolution PDF.
Be a part of the creation of this integral piece of the ArcWorlde story on it’s 10th Anniversary. Alex will be working on writing the lore and drawing the illustrations over the coming months, and sharing his progress with the backers that make it possible.

ArcWorlde is a miniatures game and to celebrate its 10th Anniversary this year I’ve sculpted a campaign-exclusive model!
You can add this mini to your pledge by increasing your total by £10. Or if you are a Patron backer you get it included for free!
In addition I’m working on something super special (and at the moment secret) that will be revealed on Thursday the 24th of August…
The ArcWorlde Compendium is a huge project with lots of work to be done writing, illustrating, designing, copy-editing and proof reading. Everyone involved is very excited to be working on it, and such things take time. I have over-estimated the time required to finish and deliver the project and to take into account any possible pit falls along the way.
The physical ArcWorlde Lore Book is a mighty tome weighing in at over 1kg, and as such the shipping costs are:
- UK – £5
- EU – £12
- USA – £15
- Rest of World – £13
All books will be printed in and shipped from the UK. Warp Miniatures is not a VAT registered business, so all orders will be subjected to your country’s tax laws.
Die Kampagne ist finanziert und läuft noch 12 Tage.
